We didn't stay here but we took their boat tour across the lake to see a real Bedouin village and then returned at night for dinner. The owner played music and sang for us so we stayed until late night talking and listening to his traditional Nubian two-man band, although he only performs when he's in the mood. His dining/sitting... More

Thanks to Joma and the other staff for a peaceful and calm place to stay. Very clean room and en suite with good shower and lots of space to rest and look out over the lake. Fantastic food cooked from local produce - one of the best meals I had in Egypt.

Rooms are comfy and spacious and the restaurant on site cannot be beaten on quality and taste. Lake Nasser is just next to the building and the famous Temple... More

The lodge is located close to Lake Nassar and the Abu Simbel temples. It is beautifully designed with Nubian styling and beautiful grounds including an organic farm with lots of animals. Our room was very comfortable. The owner Mr Fikri is a fascinating man as is Gouma, the general manager. The staff including housekeepers, cook and farmers were very friendly.... More

Eskaleh (Nubian Eco Lodge) around 500 to 700LE ensuite, cash only. Free internet, free wifi in public areas. Eskaleh is located on the road opposite the fire station, as you come from the airport to the start of the village. It is a mud-brick building made using traditional Nubian techniques and the hotel also grows some of its own crops... More

This was the perfect place to start our family vacation. It is a beautiful property that is run by lovely staff. It feels like you are a guest in a home. Food is cooked to order and AMAZING! Our kids had a fantastic time exploring the property, playing with animals in the barn and boating on Lake Nassar. Fantastic!!!!

This is a small but very friendly lodge with character oozing out of every pore. We were greeted by the owner who took us on a tour, showing all the features and building methods of the Nubians. We had a simple but tasty dinner, which they held over for us when temple rang to say sound & light show was... More
